New release: Listen and Dance to the Music of Yayo "El Indio" Peguero (1959)

"Yayo was one of the great voices to emerge from Puerto Rico in the post-war Latin music scene in New York City. A multifaceted vocalist who could interpret everything from romantic boleros to up-tempo son montunos, as well as other Latin Caribbean rhythms like merengue, plena, guaracha, guaguancó, and even calypso. Yayo's impeccable talent was his natural ability to sing and emanate with an incredible range that few singers could ever emulate."

-Jhensen Ortiz

This 1959 album showcasing Yayo's vocal range across different Latin rhythms is now available to stream on all platforms.
